>> alex smith, colin kaepernick, a quarterback controversy especially now that alex smith is healthy again, or appears to be. grant lotus on the 9ers drama and you said a few minutes ago, the 49ers are happy to have very good players at the q- backs. >> they wish they were in this position. you had a decision to make and it certainly looks like at this point the young guy, colin kaepernick is going to get the
5:14pm
starting nod against the saints in new orleans. according to sports illustrated, coach reportedly told both players of his decision yesterday, the same day he publicly would not name a starter and still not publicly. meanwhile, espn said alex smith has medically been cleared to play. however, greg roman said that's not the case. who do you believe? anyway, smith was limited in practice today. that concussion he suffered, you can see it back here on november 11th when the 9ers tied the rams. smith was having a very good season completing 70% of his passes for harbaugh and third best passer rating in the league for alex smith, but sidelined and kaepernick got his shot against the bears. smith still suffering from those concussion-related symptoms and the second year guy out of nevada was awesome.

5:16pm
>> coach harbaugh got to san francisco. alex smith has been great. 26-1, his record as a starter the past two seasons took him to the nfc championship game. almost a super bowl, so this guy has been playing well. kaepernick certainly more athletic. he's younger. he's the new sports car that you don't really know what he's capable of. the upside with kaepernick is much greater, but will he will as conservative limiting the turnovers, letting the 9ers defense win games? it's a tough spot for smith to be in. he said you've got to support your teammates. we're not playing tennis or golf where it's an individual -- >> i read that interview. >> smith is saying all the right things. harbaugh isn't saying much, but it appears -- >> kaepernick will be -- >> kaepernick getting a loud dome on sunday. >> 49ers cup runeth over.

6:09pm
the same day he publicly bowl not name a starter, still hasn't. reporting alex smith has been medically cleared to play. he passed the concussion tests but limited today in practice and the 9ers offense greg roman said he hasn't been cleared. who knows? anyway, the concussion happened on november 11th when the niners tied the rams. smith had a good season completing 70% of passes, 13 touchdowns, third best passer rating in the league. the niners are 26-1 with him the last two years, but this guy, colin kaepernick, got his chance after smith couldn't go this past week in the second year player out of nevada, going for 243 yards. two touchdowns, no turnovers. you can see harbaugh with the niners beating the bears at 32- 7. they saw enough to say he
6:10pm
was going to go with the hot head. wouldn't name the starter after the bears game, but right now it appears kaepernick's hand is hotter than alex smith. >> there's not going to be an announcement of the starting job. we both have the hot head so to speak and we feel great about it. this isn't one of the situations where you have the aging starting quarterback and everybody is clamoring for the young back-up quarterback. we had two really good guys and that's the way we feel about it. it's the opposite of a controversy. everybody understands the competitive nature of the national football league and, you know, we'll make the best decision for our team. >> why do you think harbaugh is going to keep it? >> i think he enjoys this, the manipulation with the media, number one, and also a competitive advantage, i think. if the saints don't know who to
6:11pm
game plan for, kaepernick and smith are fairly similar, but kaepernick is a lot faster, much more of a running threat and has a stronger arm. he can get it down the field more so than alex smith. >> alex, the last couple of seasons has been great for him. >> under harbaugh, he's come into his own. the defense for the niners win the game, doing all the right things and he's in a tough spot. you never want to see your quarterback lose a job because of an injury. it appears at least short-term that's the case though. >> at least they have two strong quarterbacks. >> who knows? >> coming up next, we're going to move on to other news tonight. the story of a grandmother struck and killed by a hit-and- run driver. the family seeking justice as they face their first thanksgiving without their loved ones. plus, israeli soldiers stationed at the border are packing up their bags a day after the cease fire agreement.

that juncture. mark far ran, goes up 21-14 with 340 to play and 22 seconds left, morel with a yard out and then 21-20 for phil. he decides to go for 2 and the win rather than keep the extra point and the tie and it pays off. marzetta scores. the team will mosh pit for their second straight city championship. 22-21 lincoln is their eighth triple a san francisco title. no official word on who will start at quarterback for the 49ers and don't expect anything from coach harbaugh. the multiple reports has colin kaepernick getting the nod and unclear whether alex smith has been clear for practice as he recovers from his concussion. smith cleared today. roman said smith hasn't cleared and hoping for that tomorrow.
6:53pm
kaepernick and smith split it with the first team and harbaugh gone as far as action in the game. alex smith with the new jersey in practice and get the impression harbaugh loves keeping everyone guessing, especially the saints up next for the 49ers. looking like the raiders will be without darin mcfadden and a high ankle sprain when the raiders visit cincinatti. three nfl games today, two in the books, cowboys and red kins. big rivalry. check out deangelo hall. dez bryant who looks to see if it's all clear. happy thanksgiving fellas. first half. all redskins. robert griffin iii finds pier garcon and garcon is off to the races. a little cheap shot by the cow boys at the end of the play. flags will fly. again, happy thanksgiving. 21-3. washington at that juncture. three touchdown passes in the first half.
6:54pm
here's the longest touchdown of tony romo's career. finds dez bryant, filled by dwayne harris. 85 yards, romo 441 yards. two interceptions and fourth quarter, 28-13. redskins and griffin, fourth touchdown of the game to paul. that pretty much iced it. as i said, 311 yards. 31-8 redskins. never had a chance to win it. j.j. watt, matt shaq and stafford in the gun, perfect on this 21- yard touchdown and 21-14. stafford romo with his own. lines up 10 and here's the play everyone's talking about. justin looks like he's tackled own 26 and in fact, everyone stopped playing except for wisely keeps running when he didn't hear the whistle for the
6:55pm
81-yard touchdown. jim schwartz immediately throws the red challenge flag and isn't allowed on scoring plays. the replay clearly shows the elbow and knee down. the rule states the booth can't review the play and even though forsett was down, schwartz said it's on me, he screwed up. kicks his clipboard. i'm mad too. put me back on camera. so let me get this straight. all scoring plays reviewed automatically in the booth unless a coach challenges the play which is a penalty and negates the review in the booth, so not only is the bad call allowed to stand in the case, but the team challenging the play is penalized on the kickoff which where there shouldn't be a kickoff. that's a terrible rule, bottom line. how did the game end? this goes to overtime. tied at 34. schwartz looking at jason hanson. more bad breaks for the line,
6:56pm
watch as he gets it off the upright. no good. that would have run it. houston gets where shane graham, he will kick the game- winning 32-yard field goal. 34-31 texans. improved it at 10-1 but bad luck for the lions. stanford taking it on the in the bahamas and the battle for atlantis tournament. second half at chase randall. makes the free throw. he had 22 points in randall but under a minute to go and missouri will ice it when alex makes the land. 78-70 missouri. st. mary's, one of the big games. second half. st. mary's and will hit the three pointer from the corner. again, a slick pass to brad
6:57pm
walo. they will win 76-64. now this is ugly. i take to take you out on this, but we will. more on sean woods. he's facing possible disciplinary action after shoving point guard action on the loss to kentucky, by the way, did play. after the shove would continue to yell at atkinson. facing disciplinary action as we said. that's next.
